illustrationISM is the act of continuously making your mark upon the world:
the art of being aesthetically nimble; employing the principle of line on your mark. Get, set.....go! Songs of Innocence - The New album by U2!


Francisco Chavez
I saw Francisco Chavez' OBIT in The Register Guard and thought
he lead an interesting life - so i decided to illustrate him!

( PLEASE know that these OBIT-ILLY'S are drawn with the intent to honor the reposed and their full lives.
Please forgive me if it offends anyone, I am in no way ridiculing the reposed.
I am truly inspired by their lives and accomplishments, so i want to illustrate them.
Nothing macabre, no nefarious reason, i'm drawn to people who have had noted presence in life.
